AI systems have achieved good enough performance to be deployed in our streets and our homes. For certain tasks, AI has exceeded human performance.
The promise of AI is huge, but these systems can be brittle and unfair. How can we deliver on the promise of the benefits of AI and address scenarios that have life-critical consequences for people and society? How can we achieve trustworthy AI?
Jeannette M. Wing, executive vice president for research, professor of computer science, and former Avanessians Director of the Data Science Institute at Columbia University, published a review article with Communications of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) to rally the computing community to support a broad-based, long-term research program on trustworthy AI. By bringing together researchers in trustworthy computing, formal methods, and AI, she aims to foster a new research community across academia, industry, and government.
